Ignoring threads

I'd like to ask if this forum supports the option to ignore some threads or subcategories, so that they don't appear in "View new posts".

For example I am not interested in world politics and I see daily many such posts in the subforum intended for these discussions. :oops:

Please don't get me wrong. I don't intend to insult the forum topics or those who are interested in politics. It's just that not everybody shares the same interests and would require some individual convenience :D

Maybe if you were actually an active member here you'd know this has been discussed before. :roll:

So? Just means the onus is on YOU to catch up.

You could also try the bloody search function. :roll:

Either way, Dumb Novels is back up, so you can run back and preeq-wank yourself silly over there again.

I end up reading every thread regardless of whether or not the topic interests me because I'm compulsive about the orange "new post" icons.

I am too, I open them even if I don't intend to read them.

I go thorough phases. Sometimes I can't get enough of this place and read everything new. Sometimes I could care less, but I can't stop visiting so I'll look down the list of new posts and say " ah, fuck this; off to T(A)U." :lol:

I've complained about this before, but I have to read all the new posts,
because you Off-Topic ADHD motherfuckers might derail some boring
Dune Discussion with some of the good entertainment ... and also,
the cross-thread postings ...

but seriously, what precautions are we taking against the Charwood Zombie ?

Everything but "Politics" for me. I don't even look inside there any longer.

And, rarely, I'll just skip a thread that has gotten insanely boring. It really is fairly rare, though, because most of the conversation around here is pretty good.

I've started wearing garlic flowers in my hair. ;)

(I usually only look in Politics if chanilover has posted something. Because he's rude and crude and hilarious. :D )

The Return of Harwood would be glorious. As a skilled dramatist, he must know that he should return and add a few chapters to this epic tale. He can't let the story end on the cliffhanger bequeefing of the blog. We must have The Revenge of Frank Walden.

I know the first three (maybe four, by now) books, and am in the process of learning about Heretics and Chapterhouse, and I try to read everything. And you never know when an Onasander is going to pop up.

Or off. :P


I searched Twitter a bit yesterday for accounts having to do with Norman, Oklahoma. ;)

I know he's out there, somewhere.

I can feel him. :D

Huh? What are those? I'm not familiar with that concept.

I mean, I read the words and understand what they mean, but I have no personal experiential referents. Ugly ... girlfriend? Get OUT of here! :hand:
